Download the SGS3 toolkit. Made rooting and flashing a new ROM (for a friend) so easy. If you own an SGS3, this is a must have.

very much so. samsung's got a good system with Odin :)

I'm not accusing you of trolling or implying anything negative about you or your post, but I want to point out the same system exists for at least Sony phones as well, with Sony Update Service :)

I hope all manufacs provide a similar tool, I've only ever used Xperia phones so I wouldn't know.

ah, didn't realize that sony used it too. haven't got to mess with any sony android devices personally so i wasn't aware
and i agree, more companies need to bake something like odin into their android devices

They pretty much all have some kind of equivalent, as far as I know. A lot of phones just use fastboot.

Actually, I don't know how much it's improved recently, but my experience with ODIN is that it's mostly a piece of ****. Incredibly finicky, seemingly just decides not to work on some systems, etc. We always used Heimdall instead of ODIN on when I was doing Captivate and Infuse dev work. I will give it the credit that it always saved me from any problems I might have had, and I flashed those phones probably 1000+ times.

i didn't have much luck with getting Heimdall to work when i tried it. ODIN worked flawlessly for me when i was messing with my Galaxy Tab 2 7"

i guess it's different for everybody which is why it's good that there's options
